In a desperate attempt to reduce the deficit the Government is offering the MI5 to the highest bidder.
In secret negotiations front runner Rupert Murdoch tried to set up a deal to be given a two for one offer: MI5 for him and MI6 for his son James. In exchange the Government would promise to discourage all further action against the News of the World over hacking.
Eventually, however, the deal fell through when Murdoch listened to some telephone conversations at MI5. 'You have no idea what those people get up' he said 'I have a reputation to think of and I don't want to be associated with wrong doing of this nature.'
Murdoch has now bid to take over the English cricket team. In this way the Australian hopes to influence things in such a way that Australia win back the Ashes.
